I am writing a manuscript and I want to be able to reference my figures in the manuscript which I have included like the manual suggests:

#+CAPTION: Figure caption
#+NAME:   fig:my-figure

I basically want to pop up a helm search and autocomplete elsewhere in the document to find the figure I want and reference it. Can this be achieved using C-c C-l org-insert-link or is something new needed? This only brings up a canned list of tags.

I have seen this but the question is asking only for headers.

  • Have you seen org-ref? – dangom Mar 30 '17 at 23:26
  • I actually have it installed and it is able to recognize the figure names but when I insert the link it puts in ref:fig:my-figure. I use org-ref for some things but it is way too complicated and has too much functionality, I feel like there is an easier solution. – salotz Mar 30 '17 at 23:30
